WATCH: Glenn's passionate plea for parents in Central America to stop sending their kids across the border illegally

On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn broadcasted his monologue in both English and Spanish and explained - parent to parent, dad to dad - why it is not wise to send unaccompanied children to the U.S. In it, he explained why he was coming to the border with Mercury One to provide basic humanitarian relief, as well as why the parents need to stop sending their kids on the dangerous journey to the United States.

"So you know up front, while I am against illegal immigration, I believe in justice. I also believe in mercy and as a private citizen, I have decided to use my resources to go down to the border where your children perhaps are being held in churches. They are being held in squalor. We don't see some of the pictures because our government won't allow us. We're not allowed to see what's happening in our own country. I and my viewers and my listeners have raised over 2 million dollars to bring your children a teddy bear or a soccer ball or shoes. We are bringing over a million dollars worth of food as well. We do this because we are Christians. I believe deeply in God and I believe if i can't help your child, I'm going to be held responsible for it," Glenn said.

While Glenn wants to provide relief for the children, he wanted the parents to stop sending their kids to the United States.

"First, there's the physical dangers. They will be lucky to make it alive. The journey begins on the death train.To board it, children must jump on to it while it's moving. Many are unable to hold on. They fall, causing them to be trampled by the train, losing arms and legs... If they survive the fall, they are forced to go back home. Back to where they started -- only worse off than before," Glenn said.

"Those who make it closer to the border have to endure extreme terrain -- according to news reports, 'little' dead bodies are washing up on the shores of the Rio Grande," he continued. "Others are not abandoned by a cowardly smuggler just looking to make an easy buck. They are targeted. Taken. Boys and girls both... their human-ness stripped from them... their dignity, their worth, robbed -- as they are sold into sex slavery."

"I beg you. Keep your family together. Do not hand your child off to someone who only cares about making some cash," Glenn said. "No child would trade location in exchange for their parents. Family is a gift. We need mom and dad. It's just the way we're wired. Deep down we all know this to be true. No one has to teach it to us. Your country may be in turmoil. Your town may be dangerous. But nothing is more destructive than breaking apart the family."

Spanish Transcript (scroll down for English):

ESTA NOCHE QUIERO HACER UNA PROGRAMA MUY DIFERENTE. QUIERO HABLAR DIRECTAMENTE A LA GENTE DE MÉXICO, AMÉRICA CENTRAL, Y DEL SUR.

NO UNA CHARLA. NO DESOTRICAR.

SIN JUZGAR. SIN REGAÑAR.

UNA CONVERSACIÓN DE UN PADRE A OTO.

PADRE A PADRE.

HOMBRE A HOMBRE.

CORAZÓN A CORAZÓN.

USTED NO TIENE CUALQUIER IDEA QUIEN SOY. MI NOMBRE ES GLENN BECK Y SOY UN LOCUTOR DE RADIO Y TELEVISION EN LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA. SOY UNA PERSONA QUE ESTÁ MUY EN CONTRA DE LA IMMIGRACIÓN ILEGAL.

NUESTRA FRONTERA ES UN LÍO AQUÍ EN LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS. NUESTRA FRONTERA ESTA LLENA DE DROGAS Y LA VIOLENCIA. LA MAYORÍA DE LOS ESTADOUNIDENSES NO QUIEREN IR CERCA DE NUESTRA FRONTERA. EN ARIZONA HEMOS PERDIDO ALREDEDOR DEL 80 O MAS MILLAS DE LA FRONTERA DONDE NUESTRO GOBIERNO HA PUBLICADO CARTELES QUE DICEN "SI USTED ES UN CIUDADANO AMERICANO, YA NO PODEMOS PROTEGERTE AQUÍ.”

PHOENIX SE HA CONVERTIDO EN LA CAPITAL DE SECUESTRO DEL MUNDO. ESTOY VIENDO UN PAÍS QUE NI SIQUIERA RECONOSCO. Y USTED ESTÁ VIENDO CADA VEZ MÁS COMO AMERICA SE CONVIERTE COMO SUS PAÍSES PORQUE NUESTROS GOBIERNOS ESTAN FUERA DE CONTROL. REALMENTE NO SOMOS TAN DIFERENTE. SOMOS PERSONAS TRATANDO DE SOBREVIVIR, TRATANDO DE SER UNA FAMILIA, SIMPLEMENTE TRATANDO DE CRIAR A NUESTROS HIJOS, TENER UN TRABAJO Y UNA VIDA DIGNA. Y NUESTROS GOBIERNOS A VECES VAN MAL. AMBOS QUEREMOS DOS COSAS: JUSTICIA Y MISERICORDIA.

ASÍ QUE USTED SABE, MIENTRAS QUE ESTOY CONTRA LA INMIGRACIÓN ILEGAL, CREO EN LA JUSTICIA. YO TAMBIEN CREO EN MISERICORDIA Y COMO CIUDADANO PRIVADO, HE DECIDIDO UTILIZAR MI RECURSOS PARA BAJAR HASTA LA FRONTERA DONDE SUS HIJOS QUIZÁS ESTÁN DETENIDOS EN LAS IGLESIAS. ESTÁN RECLUIDOS EN LA MISERIA. NO VEMOS ALGUNAS DE LAS FOTOS PORQUE NUESTRO GOBIERNO NO NOS PERMITE. NO SE NOS PERMITE VER LO QUE ESTÁ SUCEDIENDO EN NUESTRO PROPIO PAÍS. YO, MIS ESPECTADORES, Y MIS OYENTES HAN RECAUDADO MÁS DE 2 MILLONES DE DÓLARES PARA TRAERLE A SUS HIJOS UN OSO DE PELUCHE, O UNA PELOTA, O ZAPATOS DE FÚTBOL. ESTAMOS TRAYENDO MÁS DE UN MILLÓN DE DÓLARES EN COMIDA TAMBIÉN. LO HACEMOS PORQUE SOMOS CRISTIANOS. CREO PROFUNDAMENTE EN DIOS Y CREO SI NO PUEDO AYUDAR A SU HIJO, YO VOY A SER SOSTENIDO RESPONSABLE POR ESO. QUIERO HABLAR CON USTED ESTA NOCHE SOBRE LO QUE USTED NO PUEDE VER. YO NO PUEDO RELACIONARME CON SU VIDA. VEO LAS FAMILIAS DEL SUR DE NUESTRA FRONTERA QUE ESTAN DEVASTADA A LO QUE NOS VAMOS DE VACACIONES Y NOS VAMOS A LUGARES COMO MEXICO. NOS ROMPE EL CORAZÓN VER A LA POBREZA. LAS FAMILIAS QUE SE ESTÁN DESTROZANDO POR LA VIOLENCIA. NO PUEDO COMPRENDER LO QUE ALGUNOS HAN VIVIDO. LO QUE USTED PUEDE ESTAR VIVIENDO. NO PUEDO IMAGINAR NO TENER LOS DERECHOS QUE NOSOTROS NOS DAMOS POR SENTADO. NO ME PUEDO IMAGINAR LOS 14 AÑOS DE VIDA DE CARLOS SANCHEZ. HA TUVIDO OCHO DE SUS AMIGOS Y FAMILIARES ASESINADOS. TRES JUSTO DELANTE DE ÉL. FUE TESTIGO DE UN ASESINATO DOBLE DESPUÉS DE QUE ALGUIEN SE NEGÓ A ENTREGAR SU MOTOCICLETA A UN GRUPO DE DELINQUENTES. Y ENTONCES VIO A UN HOMBRE CAMINANDO A CASA DEL MERCADO, EJECUTADO DERECHO FRENTE A LA CALLE. ÉL DICE AHORA, “¡ES NADA PARA VER UNA PERSONA MUERTA!”

TENGO UN HIJO DE DIEZ AÑOS. YO NO PUEDO IMAGINAR MI HIJO DE DIEZ AÑOS DICIENDO ESO. INCLUSO LOS PROBLEMAS PEORES EN ESTE PAÍS NO SON ESOS. OTRA HISTORIA TAL VEZ DE SU PAÍS - CHRISTIAN OMAR REYES, NIÑO DE 11 AÑOS. ÉL QUIERE VENIR A LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS.

SU PADRE FUE ASESINADO EN MARZO.

SU MAMÁ UTILIZO EL DINERO DE SEGURO DE VIDA PARA CONTRATAR UN CONTRABANDISTA QUE LA LLEVARA A LA FLORIDA.

SÓLO TENÍA SUFICIENTE PARA PAGAR POR SÍ MISMA. LO DEJÓ DETRÁS Y SE COMPROMETIÓ A ENVIAR POR ÉL.

ÉL TODAVÍA NO SABIDO NADA DE ELLA.

NO SABEMOS QUÉ PASÓ CON ELLA.

HA PROMETIDO ESCAPARSE PARA AMERICA ESTE AÑO A BUSCAR A SU MADRE.

SUPONGO QUE PARA ALGUNOS ESTADOUNIDENSES SERÍA FÁCIL DE JUZGAR A LA MADRE PARA DIVIDIR A SU FAMILIA.

MI TIO LEO ERA DE ITALIA. CUANDO LA SEGUNDA GUERRA MUNDIAL PASÓ LA FAMILIA AGREGARON SU DINERO Y ENVIARON MI TÍO A AMÉRICA. ÉL ERA UN CIUDADANO ESTADOUNIDENSE. NACIÓ AQUÍ, PERO LA FAMILIA ERA DE ITALIA. ESTO HA SUCEDIDO EN TODO LA HISTORIA DEL MUNDO. NO LO CULPO A ÉL POR QUERER SALIR. YO NO LOS CULPO A USTEDED POR ENVIAR SUS HIJOS.

LA GENTE DESESPERADA HACE COSAS DESESPERADAS. MIENTRAS ESTOY AQUÍ SENTADO EN LA COMODIDAD RELATIVA DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NO VOY A PRESUMIR QUE YO HARÁ NADA DIFERENTE DE LO QUE HAN HECHO O TAL VEZ HAN PENSANDO EN HACER.

ESO ES LO QUE HACE ESTA SITUACIÓN TAN DIFÍCIL. ES POR ESTO QUE MUCHOS DE NOSOTROS EN AMERICA NOS SIENTIMOS TAN APASIONADAMENTE SOBRE SUS HIJOS.

ES POR ESTO QUE MUCHAS PERSONAS HAN TOMADO DIEZ O VEINTE DÓLARES Y LO HAN PUESTO JUNTOS PARA ALIMENTAR O PONER LOS ZAPATOS EN SUS HIJOS. ESTAMOS HACIENDO LO DURO Y NUESTRO PAÍS ESTÁ SIENDO DESTRUIDO PORQUE NUESTRO GOBIERNO NO ESTÁ HACIENDO SU TRABAJO EN LA DEFENSA DE LA JUSTICIA.

COMO HACEMOS LO DURO - VOY A PIDER QUE USTED POR FAVOR CONSIDERE HACER LO DURO TAMBIÉN. ¿RESISTIRAS LA TENTACIÓN DE HUIR O ROMPER A SU FAMILIA?

POR FAVOR, NO ENTREGE SU HIJO A UN CONTRABANDISTA EN EL MEDIO DE LA NOCHE.

A USTED PROBABLEMENTE LE HAN DICHO QUE ESTA ES LA TIERRA DE LECHE Y MIEL.

MIENTRAS QUE LOS POLÍTICOS PROPIO DICEN QUE NO SOMOS UNA NACIÓN EXCEPCIONAL. HEMOS SIDO GRANDEMENTE BENDECIDOS. Y HEMOS COMETIDO ERRORES HORRIBLES EN EL PASADO. HONESTAMENTE A VECES PIENSO QUE NO MEREZCO TODAS LAS BENDICIONES QUE TENEMOS. HEMOS PERDIDO EL CAMINO EN LOS ÚLTIMOS DIEZ O VEINTE AÑOS, PERO ESTAMOS TRATANDO.

USTED PUDO HABER SIDO DICHO QUE SU HIJO TENDRÁ UNA VIDA MEJOR.

PERO TE DIRÉ USTED LA LECHE Y MIEL NO HACE UNA FAMILIA.

SOY UN TIPO QUE HA PERDIDO TODO EN MI VIDA. YO NO TENÍA NADA. ME PODIA PAGAR MI RENTA Y RECUERDO QUE ME SENTÍA LÁSTIMA DE MÍ MISMO Y PENSABA QUE MIS HIJOS ESTARÍAN MEJOR SIN MÍ. GRACIAS A DIOS ME DI LA VUELTA A PARTIR DE ESA IDEA. LA FAMILIA ES LO MÁS IMPORTANTE. ESA ES LA VERDAD. NO DEJE QUE NADIE LE DIGA DIFERENTE A USTED.

AUNQUE USTED PUEDE ENFRENTAR LO INIMAGINABLE, SU HIJO ESTARÁ EN PEORES MANOS HACIENDO EL VIAJE TRAICIONERO A TRAVÉS DE MÉXICO A ESTADOS UNIDOS.

HAY ESTADOUNIDENSES QUE TIENEN MIEDO DE IR A NUESTRA PROPIA FRONTERA.

CARLOS SÁNCHEZ DE 14 AÑOS HA TENIDO OCHO DE SUS AMIGOS Y FAMILIARES ASESINADOS.

TRES DE ESOS JUSTO DELANTE DE ÉL.

FUE TESTIGO DE UN DOBLE HOMICIDIO DESPUÉS DE QUE ALGUIEN NEGÓ ENTREGRAR SU MOTOCICLETA A UN PAR DE MATONES.

Y LUEGO VIO A UN HOMBRE CAMINANDO A CASA DESDE EL MERCADO, EJECUTADO EN PLENA CALLE.

AHORA DICE QUE ES 'NADA' PARA VER A UNA PERSONA MUERTA.

UNA VEZ MÁS, TIENE 14 AÑOS.

INCLUSO LOS PEORES PROBLEMAS EN ESTE PAÍS SON PÁLIDO EN COMPARACIÓN.

CRISTIAN OMAR REYES DE 11 AÑOS QUIERE SALIR DEMASIADO.

SU PADRE FUE ASESINADO EN MARZO.

SU MADRE USÓ EL DINERO DEL SEGURO DE VIDA PARA CONTRATAR A UN CONTRABANDISTA PARA LLEVARLA A LA FLORIDA.

SÓLO TENÍA SUFICIENTE PARA PAGAR POR SU MISMA. EN REALIDAD ELLA DEJÓ A SU HIJO DETRÁS Y PROMETIÓ QUE ENVIARÍA POR EL PRONTO.

ÉL TODAVÍA NO HA OÍDO DE ELLA.

HA JURADO A ESCAPAR A ESTADOS UNIDOS ESTE AÑO.

Y NO LO CULPO... ES FÁCIL JUZGAR A LA MADRE PARA DIVIDIR A SU FAMILIA.

GENTE DESESPERADA HACEN COSAS DESESPERADAS. MIENTRAS ME SIENTO AQUÍ EN LAS COMODIDADES RELATIVAS DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NO SUPONDRÉ QUE HARÍA ALGO DIFERENTE.

ESO ES LO QUE HACE ESTE PROGRAMA DIFÍCIL. PORQUE LE ESTOY ROGANDO... PARA HACER LO MÁS DIFÍCIL, PARA RESISTIR LA TENTACIÓN DE HUIR.

NO ROMPAS TU FAMILIA.

NO ENTREGE SU HIJO A UN CONTRABANDISTA EN MEDIO DE LA NOCHE.

LE HAN DICHO QUE ESTA ES LA TIERRA DE LECHE Y MIEL.

SE LES HA DICHO QUE SU HIJO TENDRÁ UNA VIDA MEJOR... INCLUSO SI SIGNIFICA QUE ESTÁN SIN SU MAMÁ Y PAPÁ.

NADIE ESTÁ DICIENDO DURA LA VERDAD --QUE AUNQUE TE ENFRENTAS A LO INIMAGINABLE, SU HIJO SERÁ AÚN PEOR EN EL PELIGROSO VIAJE A TRAVÉS DE MÉXICO A ESTADOS UNIDOS.

EN PRIMER LUGAR, EXISTEN LOS PELIGROS FÍSICOS. SERÁN FORTUNADOS DE LLEGAR VIVO. EL VIAJE COMIENZA EN EL TREN DE LA MUERTE. PARA ABORDAR, NIÑOS DEBEN SUBIRSE A ÉL MIENTRAS SE ESTÁ MOVIENDO. MUCHOS SON INCAPACES DE MANTENERSE EN EL. CAEN, PROVOCANDO QUE SER PISOTEADO POR EL TREN, PERDIENDO LOS BRAZOS Y LAS PIERNAS... SI SOBREVIVEN A LA CAÍDA, SE VEN OBLIGADOS A IR A CASA. VOLVER A DONDE EMPEZARON--SÓLO PEOR QUE ANTES.

ELLOS MÁS CERCA DE LA FRONTERA TIENEN QUE SOPORTAR EXTREMA TERRENO--SEGÚN INFORMES DE PRENSA, 'PEQUEÑO' CADÁVERES ESTÁN LAVANDO EN LAS ORILLAS DEL RÍO GRANDE.

SÓLO DIOS SABE LO QUE SUCEDIÓ EN LOS MOMENTOS ANTES DE QUE ESOS NIÑOS PRECIOSOS FALLECIERON.

MIS HIJOS TENÍAN MIEDOS DE LA OSCURIDAD.

NO PUEDO IMAGINAR EL TERROR QUE ESOS PEQUEÑOS NIÑOS SINTIERON FLOTANDO EN LA NOCHE, SOLO, EN EL PODEROSO RÍO GRANDE.

ME PREGUNTO SI CREÍAN DE MAMÁ Y PAPÁ COMO SU VIDA COLGABA EN EL EQUILIBRIO.

¿POR QUÉ ME DEJARON?

¿ESTARÉ BIEN?

LOS PADRES NUNCA LO SABRÁN. Y NUNCA VERÁN A SU HIJO OTRA VEZ.

PORQUELE QUERÍAN DAR DE ELLOS UNA "MEJOR VIDA."

OTROS NO SON ABANDONADOS POR UN CONTRABANDISTA COBARDE SÓLO BUSCAN GANAR UN DINERO FÁCIL.

QUE SON DIRIGIDO.

TOMADO.

NIÑOS Y NIÑAS IGUAL. LA VIDA DESPOJADO DE ELLOS. SU DIGNIDAD, SU VALOR, ROBADO--COMO SE VENDEN EN LA ESCLAVITUD SEXUAL.

TIM BALLARD HA VISTO DE PRIMERA MANO CÓMO LA INDUSTRIA DEL SEXO ESCLAVO HA FLORECIDO EN LA ANARQUÍA DE AMÉRICA LATINA. COMO PARTE DE UNA OPERACIÓN QUE VIERON PERSONALMENTE 20 NIÑAS DE 11 A 12 AÑOS DE EDAD.

ASUSTADO. TEMBLANDO.

DEMASIADA AVERGONZADAS PARA MIRAR EN CUALQUIER LUGAR OTRO QUE DIRECTAMENTE AL SUELO.

SE HAN IDENTIFICADO Y ACTUALMENTE ESTÁN TRABAJANDO PARA LIBERAR A UNOS 200 NIÑOS, TODOS LOS CUALES FUERON PRESENTADOS EN UN CATÁLOGO. SÍ, TRAFICANTES EN REALIDAD PRODUCEN E IMPRESIÓN CATÁLOGOS PARA MOSTRAR A LOS CLIENTES DE PERSPECTIVA.

¿SABES CÓMO SE SIENTE CUANDO SU HIJO CAE--OBTIENE UN CORTE O UN MORETÓN. LLORAN. MÁS VECES LA LESIÓN NO ES NI SIQUIERA MALAS. ELLOS ESTÁN LLORANDO PORQUE FUE LA CAÍDA, EL GOLPE O LO QUE SEA... LES DIO UN SUSTO. ASÍ LOS CONSUELOS. Y DUELE PARA VERLOS EN EL DOLOR.

IMAGINA QUE SENSACIÓN TIEMPOS 1 MILLÓN. SU HIJO. ATRAPADOS. ASUSTADO. OFRECIDO COMO UN PREMIO PARA LA ESCORIA DE LA HUMANIDAD. PARA EL ABUSO Y TIRAR A LA BASURA.

Y NO PUEDES ESTAR AHÍ PARA CONFORTARLOS.

NO PUEDES CONTESTAR SUS GRITOS.

ESTÁN SOLOS.

ESTÁS SOLO.

¿SUENA COMO UNA MEJOR VIDA?

USTED PUEDE SENTIRSE ATRAPADO. USTED PUEDE VER NINGUNA SALIDA.

PERO SIEMPRE HAY ESPERANZA. TE LO RUEGO. MANTENGA A SU FAMILIA JUNTA. NO ENTREGE SU HIJO A ALGÚN PERDEDOR QUE SÓLO SE PREOCUPA POR HACER ALGO PARA DINERO.

DIOS LE DIO ESE NIÑO. PARA CUIDAR DE EL. NUTRIRLOS. AMARLOS. PARA VIVIR LA ALEGRÍA DE VER LOS CRECER.

USTED NO LE ESTÁ DANDO A ELLOS UNA MEJOR VIDA SI NO ERES PARTE DE ELLA.

NO IMPORTA DONDE ESTAN.

NINGÚN NIÑO CAMBIARÍA UBICACIÓN A CAMBIO DE SUS PADRES.

LA FAMILIA ES UN REGALO. NECESITAMOS LA MAMA Y EL PAPÁ. ES SIMPLEMENTE LA FORMA EN QUE SOMOS. EN EL FONDO TODOS SABEMOS QUE ESTO ES CIERTO. NADIE TIENE QUE MOSTRARNOS

SU PAÍS PUEDE ESTAR EN LA AGITACIÓN.

SU CIUDAD PUEDE SER PELIGROSA.

PERO NADA ES MÁS DESTRUCTIVO QUE ROMPER LA FAMILIA.

VOY A LA FRONTERA ESTE SÁBADO.

VOY A ALIMENTAR A SUS HIJOS E HIJAS QUE HAN SOBREVIVIDO AL PELIGROSO VIAJE.

YO, SI SOLO POR UN MOMENTO, LOS CUIDARÉ. SI TIENE SED YO LE DARÉ, ALGO DE BEBER.

SI TIENEN HAMBRE VOY A DAR ALGO DE COMER.

SI ESTAN ABAJO VOY A TRATAR DE ANIMARLOS.

Y YO LES ANIMARÁ CON LAS PALABRAS QUE CADA NIÑO QUIERE OÍR:

NO TE PREOCUPES. PRONTO ESTARÁ EN SU CAMINO A CASA ... Y USTED ESTARÁ CON MAMÁ Y PAPÁ.

English Translation:

Tonight I want to do a very different show. I want to speak directly to the people of Mexico, Central and South America. Not a lecture. Not a rant. No scolding. Just a conversation from one parent to another. Dad to dad. Man to man. Heart to heart.

You don't have any idea who I am. My name is Glenn Beck and I am a radio and TV talk show host in the United States of America. I am somebody who is very much against illegal immigration. Our border is a mess here in America. Our border is filled with drugs and violence. Most Americans don't want to go near our border. In parts of Arizona we have lost about 80 or miles of our border where our government has posted signs that say 'if you are an American citizen, we can no longer protect you here.

Phoenix has become the kidnapping capitol of the world. I am seeing a country I don't even recognize. And you are seeing America becoming more like some of your countries because our governments are out of control. We're really not that different. We're people just trying to survive, just trying to be a family, just trying to raise our kids, have a job and a decent life. And our governments sometimes go bad. Both of us want two things: justice and mercy.

So you know up front, while I am against illegal immigration, I believe in justice. I also believe in mercy and as a private citizen, I have decided to use my resources to go down to the border where your children perhaps are being held in churches. They are being held in squalor. We don't see some of the pictures because our government won't allow us. We're not allowed to see what's happening in our own country. I and my viewers and my listeners have raised over 2 million dollars to bring your children a teddy bear or a soccer ball or shoes. We are bringing over a million dollars worth of food as well. We do this because we are Christians. I believe deeply in God and I believe if I can't help your child, I'm going to be held responsible for it. I want to talk to you tonight about what you may not see. I cannot relate to your life. I see families south of our border that our devasted as we go on vacation and we go to places like Mexico. It breaks our heart to see the poverty. The families that are being torn apart by violence. I cannot comprehend living through what some have lived through. What you may be living through.

I can't imagine not having the rights that we take for granted. I can't imagine the life of 14 year old Carlos Sanchez. He had eight of his friends and families murdered. Three right in front of him. He witnessed a double murder after someone refused to hand over his motorcycle to a group of thugs. And then he saw a man walking home from the market, executed right in front of the street. He says now, it's nothing to see a dead person.

I have a ten year old son. I cannot imagine my ten year old son saying that. Even the worse problems in this country are not that. Another story from perhaps your country -- 11 year old christian Omar Reyes. He wants to get out and come to America.

His dad was murdered back in March.

His mom used the life insurance money to hire a smuggler to take her to Florida.

She only had enough to pay for herself. She left him behind and promised to send for him.

He still hasn't heard from her.

We don't know what happened to her.

He has vowed to escape to America this year to look for mom.

I guess for some Americans it would be easy to judge a mother for splitting her family.

My Uncle Leo was from Italy. When World War Two happened the family pooled their money together and sent my uncle to America. He was an American citizen. He was born here but the family was from Italy. This happens throughout world history. I don't blame him for wanting to leave. I don't blame you for sending your kids.

Desperate people do desperate things. As I sit here in the relative comforts of the United States, I will not presume that I would do anything differently than what you have done or are perhaps considering doing.

That's what makes this situation so difficult. This is why so many of us in America feel so passionately about your children.

This is why so many people have taken ten or twenty dollars and put it together to feed or put shoes on your children. We are doing the hard thing and our country is being torn apart because our government is not doing its job and upholding justice.

As we do the hard thing -- I'm going to ask you kindly will you please consider doing the hard thing as well. Would you resist the temptation to flee or to break up your family.

Please do not hand your child off to a smuggler in the middle of the night.

You probably have been told that this is the land of milk and honey.

While are own politicians say we are not a exceptional nation, we are. We have been greatly blessed. And we have made horrible mistakes in the past. Quite honestly sometimes i think we don't deserve all the blessings we have. We have lost our way in the last ten or twenty years, but we're trying.

You may have been told your child will have a better life.

But I will tell you milk and honey does not make a family.

I'm a guy who lost everything in my life. I had nothing. I couldn't afford my rent and I remember feeling sorry for myself and thinking my children would be better off without me. Thank God I turned around from that idea. Family is the most important thing. That is the truth. Don't let anybody else tell you differently.

Even though you may face the unimaginable, your child will be worse off making the treacherous journey through Mexico to the United States.

There are Americans who are afraid to go to our own border.

First, there's the physical dangers. They will be lucky to make it alive. The journey begins on the death train.To board it, children must jump on to it while it's moving. Many are unable to hold on. They fall, causing them to be trampled by the train, losing arms and legs... If they survive the fall, they are forced to go back home. Back to where they started -- only worse off than before.

Those who make it closer to the border have to endure extreme terrain -- according to news reports, 'little' dead bodies are washing up on the shores of the Rio Grande.

God only knows what happened in the moments before precious children -- like this little boy -- passed away.

My kids were afraid of the dark. I can't even begin to imagine the terror those young children felt as they floated off into the night, alone, on the mighty Rio Grande. You and I know as parents, their last thoughts were "will I be ok", "why did they leave me?"

Those parents will never know. And they will never see their child again. Because they wanted to give them a 'better life'...

Others are not abandoned by a cowardly smuggler just looking to make an easy buck.

They are targeted.

Taken.

Boys and girls both... their human-ness stripped from them... their dignity, their worth, robbed -- as they are sold into sex slavery.

Tim Ballard (Operation Underground Railroad) has seen first hand how the sex slave industry has flourished in the lawlessness of latin america. As part of an operation they personally saw 20 girls aged 11 to 12 years old.

Frightened. Trembling.

Too ashamed to look anywhere other than directly at the ground.

They have identified and are currently working to liberate some 200 kids -- all of whom were featured in a catalogue. Yes, traffickers actually produce and print catalogues to show to perspective clients. The reason I know this is because my charity has raised money to rescue some of these kids and return them to their family- but there are thousands we have personally seen that we cant get to. You know how it feels when your child falls -- gets a cut, or a bruise. They cry -- most times the injury isn't even that bad. They are crying because the fall, the bump, or whatever it was -- it scared them. So you comfort them. And it pains you to see them in pain.

Imagine that feeling times a million. Your child. Trapped. Scared. Offered up as a prize for the slime of humanity. To abuse and throw away.

And you cannot be there to comfort them.

You cannot answer their cries.

They are alone.

You are alone.

Does that sound like a better life?

You may feel trapped. You may see no way out.

But there is always hope. I beg you. Keep your family together. Do not hand your child off to someone who only cares about making some cash.

God gave you that child. To care for them. To nurture them. To love them. To experience the joy of seeing them grow.

You are not giving them a better life- if you are not part of it.

No matter where they are.

No child would trade location in exchange for their parents.

Family is a gift. We need mom and dad. It's just the way we're wired. Deep down we all know this to be true. No one has to teach it to us.

Your country may be in turmoil.

Your town may be dangerous.

But nothing is more destructive than breaking apart the family.

I am going to the border this Saturday.

I will meet your sons and daughters who have survived the dangerous journey.

I will, if just for a moment, care for them. If they are thirsty I will give them something to drink.

If they are hungry I will give them something to eat.

If they're down I will try to cheer them up.

And I will encourage them with the words every child wants to hear: Don't worry. Soon you'll be on your way back home... And you will be with mom and dad.

This story has been updated. 

I think we can all agree, both on the Left and the Right, that children who have been caught up in illegal immigration is an awful situation. But apparently what no one can agree on is when it matters to them. This past weekend, it suddenly — and even a little magically — began to matter to the Left. Seemingly out of nowhere, they all collectively realized this was a problem and all rushed to blame the Trump administration.

RELATED: These 3 things need to happen before we can fix our border problem

Here's Rachel Maddow yesterday:

I seem to remember getting mocked by the Left for showing emotion on TV, but I'll give her a pass here. This is an emotional situation. But this is what I can't give her a pass on: where the heck was this outrage and emotion back in 2014? Because the same situation going on today — that stuff Maddow and the rest of the Left have only just now woken up to — was going on back in July 2014! And it was arguably worse back then.

I practically begged and pleaded for people to wake up to what was going on. We had to shed light on how our immigration system was being manipulated by people breaking our laws, and they were using kids as pawns to get it done. But unlike the gusto the Left is using now to report this story, let's take a look at what Rachel Maddow thought was more important back in 2014.

On July 1, 2014, Maddow opened her show with a riveting monologue on how President Obama was hosting a World Cup viewing party. That's hard-hitting stuff right there.

On July 2, 2014, Maddow actually acknowledged kids were at the border, but she referenced Health and Human Services only briefly and completely rushed through what was actually happening to these kids. She made a vague statement about a "policy" stating where kids were being taken after their arrival. She also blamed Congress for not acting.

See any difference in reporting there from today? That "policy" she referenced has suddenly become Trump's "new" policy, and it isn't Congress's fault… it's all on the President.

She goes on throughout the week.

On July 7, 2014, her top story was something on the Koch brothers. Immigration was only briefly mentioned at the end of the show. This trend continued all the way through the week. I went to the border on July 19. Did she cover it? Nope. In fact, she didn't mention kids at the border for the rest of the month. NOT AT ALL.

Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not?

Make up your minds. Is this an important issue or not? Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not? Do you even care to fix it, or is this what it looks like — just another phony, addicted-to-outrage political stunt?

UPDATE: Here's how this discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

Glenn gives Rachel Maddow the benefit of the doubt

Rachel Maddow broke down in tears live on her MSNBC show over border crisis.

Progressives think the Obamas are a gift to the world. But their gift is apparently more of the metaphorical kind. It doesn't extend to helpful, tangible things like saving taxpayers money. Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation upgrades around the planned site of the Obama Presidential Center. The catch is that Illinois taxpayers will have to cover $200 million of that cost. For a presidential museum.

Eight years of multiplying the national debt wasn't enough for Barack Obama. Old fleecing habits die hard. What's another $200 million here and there, especially for something as important as an Obama tribute center?

RELATED: Want to cure millennials' financial woes? Reform the payroll tax.

That's all well and good except Illinois can't even fund its pension system. The state has a $137 billion funding shortfall. That means every person in Illinois owes $11,000 for pensions, and there is no plan to fix the mess. Unless Illinois progressives have discovered a new kind of math, this doesn't really add up. You can't fund pensions, but you're going to figure out a way to milk the public for another $200 million to help cover the cost of a library?

It's hard to imagine who in their right mind would think this will be money well spent. Well, except for maybe Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who said, "The state's… investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent."

Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

The spending has already been signed into law, even though the Obama library has not received construction approval yet. Part of the holdup is that the proposed site is on public land in historic Jackson Park. That doesn't seem very progressive of the Obamas, but, you know, for certain presidents, you go above and beyond. It's just what you do. Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

Here's the thing about taxing the peasants so the king can build a fancy monument to himself – it's wrong. And completely unnecessary. The Obamas have the richest friends on the planet who could fund this project in their sleep. If the world simply must have a tricked-out Obama museum, then let private citizens take out their wallets voluntarily.

As the Mercury Museum proved this weekend, it is possible to build an exhibit with amazing artifacts that attracts a ton of visitors – and it cost taxpayers approximately zero dollars.

'The fool builds walls': China blasts Trump over tariffs

I can picture it now: Thousands of years ago, Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, standing before hordes of his followers, in the Qin Dynasty, with a bright red bamboo hat on, and chanting, "Build that wall!"

It took a couple centuries to build the thing, but it got built. And it has been carefully maintained over the last 2,000 years, but, today, the Great Wall of China is so massive that astronauts can see it during good weather conditions from the lower part of low Earth orbit. The wall boasts over 3,000 miles of towers and brick embankments, with over 1,200 miles of natural defensive barriers. It's worth mentioning that the Chinese government is also exceptionally good at imposing digital walls, so much so that China ranks worst in the world for internet freedom.

So it's a little strange to hear an editorial run by a major news network in China criticized President Trump for his proposal to build a large wall along the southern border of America.

"Following the path of expanding and opening up is China's best response to the trade dispute between China and the United States, and is also the responsibility that major countries should have to the world," the author wrote. "The wise man builds bridges, the fool builds walls."

Similarly, the Pope told reporters in 2016, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel."

Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

If you've been to the Vatican, you know that it is surrounded by enormous walls. The same goes for all the celebrities who live in heavily walled compounds—a safety measure—but who have also vehemently criticized President Trump's plans to build a wall.

You know the adage: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at other people's glass houses." Perhaps the phrase needs an update: Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

An immaculate Nazi doctor hovers over newborn. He probes and sneers at it. "Take it away," he says. This is the very real process that Nazi doctors undertook during the era of Nazi Germany: Nazi eugenics, the studious, sterile search to find children who would define a pure breed for the German lineage. The Übermensch.

During a speech to a delegation of Italy's Family Association in Rome on Saturday, Pope Francis referred to this cruel Nazi practice, which he used as a comparison to the increasingly popular process throughout Europe of "ending" birth defects, by offering abortions to women who have babies with chromosomal defects.

Here are two passages from the Pope's remarks:

I have heard that it's fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let's send it away.

And:

I say this with pain. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves.

When CNN got the quote, and it shocked them so much that they had to verify the quote with the Vatican—in other words, it didn't fit the usual narrative.

It didn't fit the usual narrative.

The Pope also addressed claims that he has dedicated himself to LGBTQ causes:

Today, it is hard to say this, we speak of "diversified" families: different types of families. It is true that the word "family" is an analogical word, because we speak of the "family" of stars, family" of trees, "family" of animals ... it is an analogical word. But the human family in the image of God, man and woman, is the only one. It is the only one. A man and woman can be non-believers: but if they love each other and unite in marriage, they are in the image of God even if they don't believe.

The media have largely seen Pope Francis as the cool Pope, as the Obama of Catholicism. It'll be interesting to see how abruptly and severely that perspective changes.
